Lake County Republican Women – Meeting notes November 6th,2023
The meeting was called to order by Dorothy Ashcraft, President.
An invocation led by Kathy and the Pledge of Allegiance followed.
The minutes for the October meeting were adopted unanimously.
Treasury report– $10,222. Balance in account
Speaker: Dan Rausch, MD spoke to our group about vaccines. He broke his talk down into 3 areas : Immunizations, Illness and Influence.
Immunizations: Discussed relative risk reduction (RRR) vs absolute risk reduction (ARR) of vaccines. RRR gives a percentage reduction in one group compared to another.(the control group who got the vaccine in a study vs the placebo group who didn’t) This is often what drug companies use to define the efficacy of their drug. ARR gives the absolute difference in risk of getting infected in one group vs another.(vaccinated vs unvaccinated) The ARR is a much lower percentage than RRR for COVID, the Flu and RSV. It is a more accurate way of assessing what benefit you will get from a given treatment. It’s hard to assess in vaccines as it looks at all the variables in a population.
Illness- certain health conditions may benefit from vaccines depends on other co-morbidities ie: lung issues. Vaccines and all drug have side effects. Covid vaccines have shown increased myocarditis and neurologic events in population. This has to do with the nature of Covid and the vaccine using RNA from virus and spike proteins. Currently, Covid-19 vaccines are the only authorized or approved mRNA vaccines.
Treatments for Covid– off label. Ivermectin has been effective.
Check out the FLCCC website for more info. Just google FLCCC. This is an alliance of medical professionals dedicated to helping prevent and treat COVID, and to help patients take charge of other areas of their health.
Influence- There are monetary incentives for Hospitals and Doctors to follow CDC guidelines and directives. Population health is practiced, one size does not fit all. Dr Rausch believes Medicine is an art and patient dependent. The bottom line is- WE are responsible for our own healthcare.
